Chip Roy backs Elise Stefanik, says GOP must 'move forward' after conference chair loss

Roy, R-アリゾナ。, was always an extreme longshot to win the conference chair position. He announced his intention to run for the third-ranking post in the House Republican Conference this week only after members had already ousted Rep. リズ・チェイニー, R-Wyo., for her repeated condemnations of former トランプ大統領.

By that time, ステファニク, R-N.Y。, was backed by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif。, Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La。, and perhaps most notably Trump himself.

I extend my sincere congratulations to my friend and colleague, エリーゼステファニク,” Roy said in a statement. “As I said from the beginning, our goal was to provide an alternative with a proven record of standing up not for politicians — but for freedom, the Constitution, and the conservative principles Americans hold dear.
